Michael Kors Fall 2017 in Seoul

It was just last month, I got a chance to visit Seoul again after years for Michael Kors Fall 2017 Press Day, learning about the collection and the story behind the pieces.

Having known for designing Michelle Obama's dress for her first official portrait, Michael Kors Fall 2017 Collection is all about a play between masculine and feminine, it's about the sensual strength and defining woman of lead; featuring strong shoulder and defined waist, camel, leopard, fur and everything interesting.

My favorite has got to be the matchy matchy camel houndstooth coat and tartan plaid pants, along with the knitted jumper, it's very Autumny, just perfect for my liking.
I can also see my self in the all army green look that consists of plain army green blouse, trousers and light coat, plus the leather gloves, so much coolness in one look.

Right after the press presentation we had free time until dinner and we took the chance to shoot some outfit pictures while having fun strolling around the city, from Gangnam-gu to Myeong-dong, from Myeong-dong to Gwangjin-gu and lastly to Hongdae for dinner and ice cream to wrap up the day ;)

I was wearing, of course everything Michael Kors for the day and got to love my denim on denim look esp the floral-embellished jacket, it's everything! Bag choice is the sloan editor bag which goes well with most of my looks.

More life

When you come to Sydney during its perfect winter; sunny during the day and a little bit cold at night, just my type. Anyway, we'll be here for another 8 days and I hope it won't be over too soon as we are enjoying our time here, promise to share all the fun with you guys!
Meanwhile, here goes some outfit pictures that we took this afternoon at Summer Hill; because comfy oversized clothing is everything.

While some people prefer to wear sweatshirt with sneakers or sport shoes, high heels will always do the trick for this petite lady. Adding to my shoe collection is this very pair of Nicholas Kirkwood 'Eyelet' Mary Janes which has perfect platforms and unique heels. Husband's niece said that my shoes look weird but how about you guys? Any thoughts?

Happy stripes

With Olympus PEN F in my hand and Tities Saputra's pieces on my body, here goes yours truly, the petite explorer visiting Korean Traditional Village for the second time. I didn't manage to take many pictures on my first visit so I made sure I did take many this time around.

Well, since the weather was a little bit cold but good for me, I was able to go out in this stripe ensemble, my favorite set from Tities Saputra's latest Men's Collection, oh how I love local made!
The material is a little bit thick, it has texture and the printed patches are lovely, you know how I love pastels! And well, it was just perfect for the day. Not to mention that we were visiting Bukchon Hanok Village and I feel like the outfit kinda matches the village, yes?

Many still asked on how can I survive walking in high heels, and guess what? The answer is still the same, really guys, I am just use to it.
You know, I used to be a dancer and wear them heels for a long 7-8 hours just for the dance practice, I guess that's how it all started. Perhaps, it was also because of my height issue back then, so I was more determined to get use to it. Now, I feel more comfortable wearing high heels rather than flats.

Rain rain go away

It was raining the whole day that day but we still managed to visit Gyeongbokgung for pictures and because it was Goldwin's first time to Seoul. Andy and the girls went inside the palace first while Goldwin and I stayed outside wishing that the rain would stop anytime soon. Tough luck, the rain didn't stop at all but at least it did quiet down a little bit, so we decided to just sit at the small pavilion near the main gate while waiting for the kids to finish taking pictures inside.

Lucky enough, I packed this outfit and wore it that day because it was rather cold due to the constant rain. Instead of renting hanbok like Andy and the other girls, I prefer to just keep this outfit since it kinda matches the palace. Well, it was my third time to Seoul but I still didn't feel like renting hanbok and wearing it for pictures, or maybe it's just my age hahaha.

Paired up this vibrant ruffled sleeve top with an old A-line leather skirt of mine I scored years ago, I didn't think I would wear it again after such a long time, not to mention twice this year. It's just how important to keep basic pieces in your closet because who knows you'll need it again someday, or in a few years, perhaps.

Oversized shirt and everyday hair

Many people said that my hair is getting nicer lately and well, I kinda agree with that. The secret? It's the haircut.... and a few other things, just read until finish, hmm?

I used to have damaged hair to the point that I didn't need to cut my hair because it keeps breaking messily, even curling it wouldn't make my hair look as good. So, when I got my healthy hair back, I asked my favorite hairdresser, Andreas Zhu to handle my hair, to do whatever with it because I trust him, and voila.

First, I got a nice haircut, letting go all the dry and split ends! And then, he told me to get my root permed in order to give more volume to my flat roots, so be it. Lastly, I got my hair highlighted for more texture and dimension.
PS. About the curl, I actually just curl my hair like how I normally do it, it's really because of the haircut and the styling.

Well, you know how much I love oversized T-shirts, it's so versatile you can style it with just everything. One of my favorite thing to do with it, is just to wear it with a pair of shorts and my favorite high heels on, roll the sleeves up and wear a cute sling bag to complete the look. When having holiday overseas, more experiment is a must; I sometimes wear the plain look with my eye candy shoes over plain socks, a pair of thigh high boots will do the trick too, how fun right?
